Ben & Jerrys today (Tuesday) filed a lawsuit against its parent company, Unilever, claiming that selling ice cream in the settlements is "inconsistent" with its values.

This is a week after Unilever signed an agreement according to which the company will continue to produce and sell ice cream in Judea and Samaria, indefinitely.



The lawsuit states that the agreement "threatens to undermine the independence of the Ben & Jerrys brand", which the company's board sought to defend when Unilever acquired it in 2000. .

According to the agreement between the Israeli franchisee and Unilever, he is allowed to write the name Ben & Jerrys on the ice cream packaging only in Hebrew and Arabic.

He must not write the name in English on the packaging.

According to the company in Israel, this arrangement ensures the continued operation of the Ben & Jerrys Israel plant in Beer Tuvia, and the employment security of the hundreds of workers in the plant, as well as the livelihoods of thousands of Israelis and Palestinians in charge of supplies and services.



"Unilever rejects any form of discrimination and intolerance," the company said in a statement.

"Anti-Semitism has no place in any society. We have never expressed support for the BDS movement and we have no intention of changing that position," she stressed.
